“The flavor was old burned grease!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

We ordered a haddock meal and the variety platter of 5 types of sea food. Everything tasted the same. All the same flat batter. The flavor was old burned grease. It was easily the worst meals we have had in Crystal River!

“If you like clams, this place is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

The fried clams are incredible, they come as an appetizer or meal, so squeeze them in somewhere. The shrimp were good fried and streamed. The hush puppies were very tasty and the texture was just how I like, crisp outside and fluffy inside. The service was great, it server was well informed on the preparation techniques used for each dish and the items that sold frequently. I'll take the time to visit Dan's Clam Stand every time I'm in Crystal River.

“So disappointed.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

First, the good news. Service was terrific and the lobster was plentiful on the lobster roll. That's where the good news ends. The restaurant is on a busy highway at the entrance to a campground/RV park, so the atmosphere on the outdoor patio (facing the highway) was not ideal. We shared a bowl of Manhattan chowder and it was not very good - mostly potatoes and lacking in clams. The cole slaw that came with my lobster roll was soupy and tasted like the slaw that is sold in a grocery deli. Both the roll for my lobster and the bun on which my husband's grouper sandwich was served were super greasy. And the fries that came with the grouper sandwich were frozen crinkle cuts. We were expecting more and feel a bit led astray by Trip Advisor reviewers. We'll choose another restaurant the next time we visit Crystal River.
